For many, ab training is one of their most favorite parts of exercising.
But we don’t always have the luxury of spending one to two hours in the gym.
Sometimes, ten minutes is all we’ve got, and we have to make the best of it.
With that in mind, here are three great moves to sculpt your abs, ten minutes at a time.
3 sets of 1-2 minute holds.
The plank is one of the best movements not just for your core, but for the rest of your body, as well.
It is an isometric hold that can be modified to fit people of many athletic levels and you can even use it as a finisher. Finish one exercise and immediately position yourself for a plank and hold it for as long as you can.
2. Mountain climbers
3 sets of 1 minute each.
A highly dynamic and enjoyable exercise for your core, as well as shoulders, chest, and arms.
If you don’t have the unique gliders for this movement, you can use a pair of plastic plates, put them on your toes and get to work.
3. Lying crunch
3 sets of 12-30 repetitions.
The crunch is one of the safest and most effective movements you can perform to sculpt a fantastic six-pack.
Place a yoga mat (or something to cover the floor), lie down, and do as many repetitions as you can with good form.
Remember, crunches are most effective when you focus on proper form, smooth execution and an intense contraction on top position.
